Rescue from heights demo

Our mannequin “Jeff” got himself into trouble. Jeff collapsed while working from heights, his harness saved him from falling to the ground, and he needed rescuing to receive medical treatment.

On Friday, 26 March, Relay EMS presented a rescue from heights demonstration at a construction site. The scenario was a patient who collapsed and injured themselves while working from the roof of the site.

Relay EMS responded to the call. Our Emergency Response and Rescue Vehicle is equipped with the necessary equipment to perform a high angle rescue. Our ALS Paramedic and rescue team, supported by our ambulance crew on the ground, geared up to rescue Jeff from the roof.

After abseiling down to Jeff and securing him, Jeff was released from the harness and lowered to the ground, where he received medical treatment before being taken to hospital.

We are pleased to say that Jeff made a full recovery and is safely back at our base, awaiting his next adventure.
